Hiking around the Kathmandu Valley gives you the opportunity to take in terrific mountain vistas and visit rural Nepali villages without having to venture too far from the capital or deal with the altitude sickness that plagues other treks in the country. Here’s what you need to know before your hike.
 
Day Hikes
Kathmandu is surrounded by traditional villages, comely hills, and relatively low-altitude mountains that are perfect for shorter treks and day hikes. One of the most popular day trips involves an early-morning departure to watch the sunrise at Nagarkot before heading out for a leisurely (mostly downhill) hike to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Changu Narayan Temple. To experience a part of Nepal many visitors miss, take a guided hiking excursion to Kakani to trek through pine forests and sample the local specialty, rainbow trout. Alternately, the recently developed trail from Sanga to Panauti passes through small villages that are rarely visited by foreign tourists.
 
Multi-Day Hiking Tours
Those with more time to spare can explore the Kathmandu Valley more deeply over the course of an overnight trip or a weeklong excursion. Shorter itineraries might visit Himalayan hill towns such as Bandipur, Nagarkot, or Dhulikhel, while longer trips venture farther afield into regions like Annapurna, Mount Everest, and the remote Ruby Valley.
 
Things to Know
  • Day hiking excursions can last anywhere from eight to 13 hours, depending on the area visited.
  • Multi-day itineraries are available from two nights to a full week.
  • Most guided hikes include trekking permits and an English-speaking guide.
  • Overnight treks usually include three meals per day and accommodations in tents, private homes, or local teahouses.

Everest Base Camp Trek - 14 Days

Everest Base Camp Trek - 14 Days

star-5
498
Everest Base Camp Trek gives you an opportunity to visit some of the high-altitude destinations that only a handful of world’s population ever gets to visit. Following the footsteps of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, trek along the foothills of Himalayan mountains including the world’s highest, Mount Everest (8,848 m). Stand beneath their massive shadows and feel humbled. En route experience Sherpa hospitality and culture, Buddhist spiritualism (the trails are adorned with mani stones, chortens and colorful prayer flags) and amazing mountain scenery. NOTE: The Lukla flights to and from Kathmandu had been shifted to Manthali Airport, Ramechhap district in 2019 & 2020 due to heavy air traffic during peak trekking season (Mar, Apr, May, Oct, Nov). But, for now, the flights are directly between Kathmandu and Lukla. Extra cost would be applicable if airlines don't provide any shuttle services or if you want to take a private vehicle instead of the shared ride provided by the airlines.
